Story Lines

Bounce Back: FC Dallas will need to bounce back after Peter Luccin's perfect head-coaching record was blemished last Saturday. Dallas was 15 minutes away from a third-consecutive win under the Frenchman but was unable to get across the finish line in Seattle, eventually falling 3-2 despite holding a 2-0 up until the 78th minute. Dallas and Luccin will look to bounce back with a home stand against FC Cincinnati, last year's Supporters' Shield winners. The clubs have played each other just once before, way back in 2019 during FCC's debut MLS season when FCD cruised to a 3-1 victory over the newcomers. But a lot has changed since then. Cincinnati travel to Toyota Stadium as the current Supporters' Shield holders having finished atop the MLS regular season standings in 2023. Cincy is flying high again this year and sit second in the overall table behind only Inter Miami.

Closing Games: Dallas have undeniably improved on the attacking end since Luccin took over. The club is averaging three goals per game (three-game sample size) after scoring just 18 goals in the 16 games (1.125 per game) before Luccin assumed the role. It's come at the expense of some defensive solidity, though. After earning a shutout in Luccin's debut against Minnesota, Dallas has conceded three goals in back-to-back games (with four of of those six goals coming after the 75th minute of games). Considering Cincinnati have recorded three separtate four-goal games in their last five outings, FCD needs to keep things extra tight defensively - especially in late-game situations.

Cincy's Road Form: FC Cincinnati bills to be one of FC Dallas' toughest home tests of the season. Pat Noonan's team has been dominant on the road, posting a remarkable 7-1-1 record away from home this year. FCC's only road defeat was back in April when the team lost 2-1 to CF Montréal. Since then, Cincinnati have won five out of five games away from TQL Stadium - a rare feat in MLS. The positive for Dallas is that all five of the club's wins in 2024 have come at Toyota Stadium, including two under interim head coach Peter Luccin. FCD will need to be at their best Saturday night to avoid their first home loss since mid March.
